WHY A YOGA RETREAT?
I believe that anyone who enjoys a lifestyle of health and wellness can greatly benefit from a yoga retreat. Here is why:
1. You’ll relax, de-stress and re-energize
Sometimes, the only way to allow ourselves to truly relax, is to be far away from home. Being on a retreat allows you to listen to your body, rest when you need it and be free from your everyday stress, while being away from your usual daily distractions.
2. You’ll take your yoga practice to the next level.
Practicing yoga regularly can be challenging if you have a busy schedule. Because you will typically practice twice a day on a yoga retreat, you will deeply get into your asana practice which ensures your progress and you will see the positive effects more quickly.
3. Changing your perspective
A yoga retreat is an experience beyond the ordinary. It offers you a chance to change your perspective and, by extension, your attitudes. You often change ordinary habits and all of the sudden you see your self, your potential and your life, in a whole new way. While being on a retreat, we make that changing in how we see the world from the inside out. And the changes we experience, and our new outlook, stay with us way beyond the days of the retreat. The ripples are deep and long lasting. Love yourself, love your body, and love your life.
4. You will discover new adventures
Pick a retreat in an other country and you will find yourself on a journey of a lifetime. Far beyond just your yoga practice, you will be able to expand your horizon. You will get to see the world through a different lens and perhaps change some of your own perspectives while you´ll get to know new cultures and experience new things. Experiencing the unknown is an accelerated way to grow and learn.
5. You’ll “actually” meditate
It’s a lot easier to meditate when you have a professional guidance and besides an extended free time. On retreats, it feels a lot more natural to breathe deeply and be present in that very moment.
6. You’ll detox digitally.
As most of the retreats are typically held away from hustle and bustle areas, you will be able to finally put down your phone and laptop and just take in the beautiful surrounding you are in. This is your chance to disconnect digitally and reconnect with yourself and nature.
7. You’ll eat healthy
If your retreat is all inclusive, you´ll get daily healthy
and nutritious meals, which are whole, organic produced and beneficial for your body. You will eat well, and your body will thank you for it.
8. You’ll make new friends
You will meet new people with similar interests and there’s a good chance you’ll meet a few like-minded people who will eventually become your friends.
9. You’ll learn to appreciate home
While a week in paradise is always nice, we often come home with a refreshed appreciation for life. On a retreat you´ll learn things for your further life. You feel happier and healthier, which lets you jump back into your daily routine even more energized.
10. And last but not least: because you deserve it!
Haven´t you often enough said ´you can’t yet´. Often the excuses are about time, money or circumstances, but guess what, you deserve a break. You work hard for a reason!
There are always reasons why you should or should not do something. The key to happiness is deciding what you really want and making it happen. So no more excuses- start your very own way to happiness right now. You deserve it!
You deserve to invest in yourself.
